My Favorite Cookbook

More-With-Less Cookbook
suggestions by Mennonites on how to eat better and consume less of the world’s limited food resources, Written by Doris Janzen Longacre, ISBN 0836117867

I bought this book in 1977 and have used it ever since. I noticed a few weeks ago that it has been reissued. Just in time – besides the great recipes, it’s a concise and friendly primer on staying healthy with fewer resources. And it’s got a terrific section on equivalents and substitutions – it’s very practical.

Mapleine Dainties cookbook

This cookbook is undated but is probably from the 1900s-1910s (ads in 1907-1914 mention this booklet, and nothing in the contents contradicts this early date). Lots of interesting recipes using Mapleine, from Seattle’s Crescent Manufacturing Company. I will be doing a post about Mapleine on soon.

I should add that there were versions of Mapleine Dainties right up to the 1920s. The design of this one is clearly earlier, though. (There is a later edition with a blue cover and possibly 1920s-style graphics, for example.)
